with the numbers saying how, you know, it's a moral obligation to reduce the deficit, just ask 'em, well, explain us how the numbers work. because they don't. they don't have a deficit reduction plan. they have a deficit expansion plan. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: now, this morning governor romney jumped on those new gdp figures, said it reinforces his charge that this country cannot afford another four years of president obama and that his five-point plan for is the right prescription for this country. this is what he said. >> those five things i describe will get america's economy going again, will help people find jobs that need those jobs, will get take-home pay to come up again. this is not a mystery. we know how to do it, america has faced challenges before. when we have strong leaders, when we have people who know how to lead and where to get it -- we can get it done. and i am and we will. >> reporter: governor romney looking more toward the future and what this country would be like under a romney administration, making this as much about a choice as it has been so far about a refe
, the deficit. allow fracking. frac away. by the way, there is nothing, never has been any proof of disease or anything -- >> greg: they tried it with breast cancer -- >> bob: i wasn't supposed to talk about the disease part. andrea made a good point. marellus shale runs from ohio, to upper new york state. our friend denny harton you met. friend from west virginia. he convinced me how safe fracking was. it's an important point. if you drive buss with natural gas, it seems you can drive anything with natural gas, right? >> bob: he told me we didn't have the infrastructure to carry natural gas. why not invest in infrastructure to carry natural gas? not have so much dependency on foreign oil. >> kimberly: welcome to the conservative party, bob beckel. >> andrea: can you spread that in your party >> eric: >> bob: when you have that much of an energy resource and you know it runs things, the only problem, of course, is that -- well, anyway. >> greg: k.g. -- >> kimberly: i'm for fracking all the way and anything that gives us energy independence so we're not on bended knee constantly to the middl
and it is produced -- it has produced record-setting deficits and putting us in a path of greece and where much of europe are. the economy is teetering on the edge of recession. the were seen can do is jacked up taxes on small businesses and entrepreneurs or job creators. that makes it all the more likely to push us into a recession. and for the 23 million people who struggling for work, the worst thing to do is hurt the small businesses that create those jobs. >> it is fair to say that the president has reduced taxes. he has reduced taxes for small businesses 18 times. he cut taxes for '95 -- for 95% of families out there. the question is do we ask everybody to sacrifice? when you look at the marginal rate in the united states, when ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united states, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had margi
to national security. back then in 1988, democrats were in the middle of a 30-year, 35-point deficit when it came to voter trust on national security. that security gap began in the aftermath of the vietnam war and persisted very stubbornly until about 2008 when it closed up due mostly to republican mistakes. voters were tired of the iraq war, tired of the kind of blundering that they had perceived in the bush administration and decided that both parties, there was kind of a pox on both houses. what's been very interesting -- and third way has been partnering with our own polling and focus groups for the last seven years -- is that if you look at this slide, that's the security gap. if you extend it out to the left, it gets wide and absolutely consistent going all the way back to about 1972. but you could see where it closed up in '07-08 because of the iraq war, and now it's closed up again. and the interesting thing about that is it's at zero now because we have a president who has had an enormously successful first term when it comes to national security. when we did focus groups on thi
, look, we've had trillion-dollar deficits. every single year, he's added $5 trillion to the national debt. you've had all the bailouts. you've had so many things that mitt romney could run on, and he hasn't been able to do it. willie, that is the ongoing frustration that this man has been given more material than any republican nominee since ronald reagan in 1980, and he can't seem to connect the dots and explain why a conservative economic world view should be used to turn this economy around. it is a daily frustration for conservatives. >> and daniel hopes mr. romney will take up this point at the debate six days from now. steve, let's inside these numbers. you've got some charts explaining president obama's recent surge in the polls. >> yes, because while i agree with a lot of what joe said, there are some substantive reasons why president obama should be doing better at the moment. they don't get as much attention. so let's talk a little about it. first, nobody is happy with the state of the economy at the moment. 2% growth with 8% unemployment. but as we've talked about on this
tax dollars per "two things about that -- the fed is reducing the deficit and making huge profits returning record amounts of money to the treasury as a result of all their previous quantitative easing. so the opposite of spending your tax dollars is true. and of course the fed is legally independent and run by guy appointed by george w. bush. so this was so completely over the top that we decided we have to do a piece on that particular e-mail. pretty much these messages to true believers exceed what we have already defunct. >> we are out of time. thank you for your attention. we appreciate your questions. [applause] >> coming at 4:30, we will be live at the un for a speech from the president of libya. he will be speaking before the general assembly gathered this week. coverage starting at 4:30 eastern. we will have that live on c- span. before that, earlier today, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu spoke to the world body. this is just over half an hour.
